WWE Fastlane: Sasha Banks Vs. Nia Jax

Match starts off fast with a flurry of offense by Banks which barely affects Jax. Jax is able to get her down and connect with a backbreaker. She applies a submission hold to her back. Banks escapes and goes for a sunset pip attempts, but Jax counters and knocks her down hard again. She covers Banks, but she kicks out at two. Jax toys with Banks around the ring and applies a surfboard stretch. Banks gets out with a couple of kicks to the head, but Jax tosses her across the ring.

She talks trash to Banks then sends her back down to the mat. She covers her, but Banks kicks out at two. Jax applies a surfboard stretch again. After a moment Banks gets out, but Jax connects with a hard scoop slam. She toys with Banks some more and Banks is able to get a brief advantage. Jax is able to counter attack and applies a torture rack submission.

After a while, Banks counters with a guillotine choke. Jax gets out, but Banks applies a sleeper hold. Jax almost gets out several times, but Banks reapplies the sleeper hold. Jax eventually slams her down with a vicious choke slam and then a running leg drop to the bank. Jax taunts and goes for the samoan drop, but Banks counters with a roll up and gets the three count.

Winner: Sasha Banks. A decent little match. I liked the how dominant Jax looked, but the abundant of submission slowed the match down. The Banks win is a mistake to me. I don’t know if Banks is still turning heel, but I would’ve liked to still see that story continue with Banks eventually snapping. Either way, Jax should’ve won here.
